We asked ourselves, "Why do side tables need 4 legs?". The answer, they don't! This side table is such a unique design because the top appears to be floating when you look at it from different angles. The minimal aesthetic blends well with modern and industrial surroundings.
The old growth pine is salvaged from demolition homes throughout the Mid-West. These boards are over 100 years old and have tons of character and even more history to them. The term "old growth" refers to the original origins of the board. The trees that old growth lumber came from grew naturally, during a time before massive deforestation. Since they grew in a dense forest, they received less light and grew more slowly than newer lumber. This slower growth allowed for a tighter ring pattern and denser wood.
Two finish options are available, Rustic and Natural. - Rustic: Lightly sanded to remove loose dirt and splinters and maintain it's weathered patina and is the darker of the two option. Since these shelves are only sanded, a slightly uneven surface is expected.
- Natural: Planed down to remove the weathered patina on both the top and bottom of the board. These shelves will show off the natural tone and grain of the wood.
The wood is full of cool characteristics, such as nail holes, plaster lines, and color variations. We cannot guarantee that the table you receive will look identical to the one in the product shot. Although, all surface imperfections are natural and tell a story that spans over a hundred years, making each piece unique and truly one of a kind.
Materials: 2" thick reclaimed pine, 2" American made steel angle
